Fab masters of illumination, Wästberg, created the loveliest exhibition during Stockholm Design and Architecture Week. In the magical setting of Skridskopaviljongen Wästberg cherished fire as a light source. The Holocene collection consists of two oil lamps and one candlestick by designers Ilse Crawford, David Chipperfield and Jasper Morrison.
The essence of a stylish Stockholm winter afternoon: Bamboo Chair by Viggo Boesen (1936), table Utö by Axel Einar Hjorth (1930s) and contemporary candle light! I can imagine myself in that chair, wrapped in a cosy blanket, with a wool rug on the floor, teacup in my hand and… a pile of books to read.
